General Public Agency
Exemplar Talks and Walks Programme

General Public Agency coordinated and curated a season of debates in tandem with Design for London's exhibition 'London Open City' at Somerset House. Sponsored by Exemplar Properties, the Exemplar Talks featured international speakers Pascal Maragal, Richard Rogers, Jaime Lerner and Majora Carter, and opened up questions of ownership, transformation and participation within the public realm. The Exemplar Walks series was led by British-based practitioners – the poet Ruth Padel, artist Lottie Child and architect Torange Khonsari – and invited participants to experience the public realm of London in creative and unexpected ways.
